When you play the game of goldfish, you either win or you die…
Thanks to the Etsy shop, JokerandtheThief (artist Matt Kirkland), you can now play your favorite card games with the cast of Game of Thrones.
These “Bicycle” styled hand-made playing cards are based off the second novel in the George R.R. Martin series, A Song of Ice and Fire. In the second book as well as the TV series, four characters take claim to the Iron Throne – Robb Stark, Joffrey Baratheon, Stannis Baratheon, and Stannis Baratheon. Which is PERFECT since there are four Kings in a deck of cards! Here is the breakdown how some of our favorite GoT characters are represented in this set:
King of Spades – Robb Stark, King in the North
Queen of Spades – Catelyn Stark, Robb’s mother
Jack of Spades – Jon Snow, Robb’s half-brother, sworn brother of the Night’s Watch
King of Diamonds – Joffrey Baratheon, King on the Iron Throne
Queen of Diamonds – Cersei Lannister, Joffrey’s mother and Queen Regent
Jack of Diamonds – Tyrion Lannister, Joffrey’s “uncle” and Hand of the King
King of Hearts – Stannis Baratheon, Eldest brother of King Robert
Queen of Hearts – Melisandre – Red Priestess and advisor to Stannis
Jack of Hearts – Davos Seaworth (the Onion Knight), Advisor to Stannis
King of Clubs – Renly Baratheon, Youngest brother of King Robert
Queen of Clubs – Daenerys Targaryen (Kaleesi, Mother of Dragons)
Jack of Clubs – Jorah Mormont, Exiled Knight and advisor to Queen Daenerys
Jokers – Petyr Baelish (Littlefinger) and Varys
What a perfect gift to being to this year’s Game of Thrones premiere party!
